    I was looking for a replacement for my Bose headphones that stopped working just out of warranty and I was looking for something not too expensive, I searched for best headphones on a budget and these came up. I read some reviews and decided they were worth a try.

    My verdict is simple: If you are reading this and you are looking for great headphones in the price range of these headphones, just buy them and you will be amazed. I certainly am.

    I have rediscovered lots of music that just sounds amazing through these headphones, and the incredible thing is that these phones cost less than a third of what my last couple of pairs cost. These are better then my Bose, better then my Beats, and better than any headphones I can recall using in a very long time.

    The sound is bright and crisp, with incredible detail. You hear things that you previously didn’t appreciate in music, thats my experience anyway. I was worried that they may lack bass, they don’t lack bass at all but they are not as…

    These have apparently been in production since 1991. I decided to try out a pair after I got frustrated mixing some tracks I had produced in my home studio. My cheap headphones emphasise the bass, which is a bad idea when mixing music – you end up turning the bass *down* to compensate for the headphones, so the music sounds weak when played through speakers, so you turn up the bass to compensate for *that* and you just don’t know what’s right or wrong any more.

    Putting them on I was struck by the quiet – there’s no background hiss. Sound-wise I don’t want to come across like a hi-fi snob, but the sound has “definition”, in particular the bass doesn’t sound like bassy muddy soup, it has punch and I can tell the difference between kick drums and bass notes. I was expecting these headphones to have weak bass, but the bass is nice and strong – clear, sharp, you can hear it. It’s particularly good for drum’n’bass, where you have sub-bass, a bassline, and a kick drum in that order moving…

    I replaced a broken £30 pair of Sennhiesers with these. I use headphones a lot, especially for laptop Prime movies and Spotify, but I really NEED them for playing the piano. At home I play a Roland stage piano (with no built-in speakers) almost every day. Before I got these I hadn’t realised the tangled mess the Sennhiesers were making of the upper midrange. There was even one piano on the Roland which I couldn’t use because of the piercing and jangly high end of the spectrum, and for that I blamed Roland, not Sennhieser. Of course, I accept that Sennhieser make some of the best headphones money can buy, but these were from the budget end of the range.

    As soon as I plugged in my new Sony headphones the harsh sounds vanished and the instrument took on a whole new quality. Masses of subtlety emerged instantly, adding layers of nuance which I found myself responding to, and consequently I get so much more out of playing the piano than before. And they’re comfortable, capable of being…

    I’ve purchased many different headphones in recent years and thought I had really heard my music but but until I purchased these.

    They are EQ neutral, so you will hear what your device outputs. I am using mine with an old Sony amp and on the move I am using a Samsung Galaxy S5 with the Neutron Music Player (not free but well worth the purchase if you really love your music), I am also using a lossless music format for most of my music otherwise MP3 files are at 320k bit-rate and CDs when I am at home.

    I have tried these for rock, metal and blues and these are truly the first set of headphones or earphones that have been able to sound good with various types of metal music. I am yet to listen to anything that these headphones have not been able to cope with.

    The sound is clear, precise and clean. You don’t get too much bass or treble and if you have a need to tweak the sound your EQ is there on your device.

    The build quality is top notch as you would expect from this price range.

    My only…
